~ First Love

First Love

My breath stopped in mid-air as you passed me by

You looked not my way no intention to pry

My heart sanctioned a warning to my mind

Walk this path, your history you shall leave behind


You were not of my culture not of my creed

Had no inclinations knew not what I believed

Two worlds far apart could they be joined closely

Two customs separate will this love be costly


You looked in my eyes all around me faded

A caress of your touch my senses waded

Hearing your tender masculine, voice

Left my heart racing amidst its poise


Together we were falling into this new emotion

Our differences then caused no commotion

Our hearts wilting to reach the others soul

One without the other no longer whole


First love camped itself in our hearts

Many firsts for us had unfolded many starts

Holding me close our hearts connected

Looked into me deeply forever affected


The words ‘I love you came in such gentle fear

Had you not realised, I was already there

Sitting, listening to the tunes of the piano man

His song enriched our love, no words, no demand


You revealed to me a life I had never met

You introduced me to grandeur hard to forget

Adoration had led me by my hand

Contemplation whispered admiration’s plan


Reverence to our love was adopted purely

Awe joined us together softly but surely

Passion embarked on our spirits to unite

Exhilaration, our link to unhindered delight


Love snatched us into loves grasping hold

Enticed us through its refining mould

Carried us to journey loves many deeds

Always reminding us of first loves pleads
